Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Due to renewal work, until 1 July 2018, all visitors must purchase an online ticket with a time slot in advance. Tickets are made available on the website www.annefrank.org two months in advance. The Anne Frank House is a small museum with limited capacity. The demand for tickets is far greater than the number available, so there may be no tickets available for certain dates. We hope you can find a suitable date and welcome you in the Anne Frank House.

A really great museum. Definitely pre-book tickets and jump the queue. You can really feel the history, pretty moving.

My friends and I were on our Eurotrip in June 2014 and Amsterdam was one of our stops. When planning our trip, the Anne Frank House was on our to-do list as a lot of friends who had previously been to Amsterdam had highly recommended taking a visit there. There was quite a long line to get tickets but the staff were rather efficient and it was only a wait of 30-45 minutes before we managed to go in. In my opinion, this is probably one of the best museums I have ever been to. They take you on a journey and because of the fact that the house actually became a museum, it makes you feel so overwhelmed when walking through the rooms and exhibitions. The videos with interviews and the quotes from Anne's diary add more to the experience. You can't help but feel emotionally overwhelmed as you walk through but I would definitely recommend visiting.

Booked a couple of weeks before our stay, but still could only get an evening slot. There was a queue when we arrived at 8.40 so we were glad we had. Busy! A bit difficult to take it all in as it is such a sad story. Thought provoking so allow time for that.

Unlike any other site I've ever seen. Very moving and well-run too. Open until 10pm in July and August.
